Has Team Manager Duties Changed?

Post by Soccertalk on 02/09/18, 06:14 pm

New to this club and team so had some questions...

Does your "Team Manager" run training sessions with the coach or coach games more than the coach? I thought team managers just "manage" not run the team.

Hopefully I didn't didn't spend this much money on someone that has NO Coaching experience or knowledge on what an actual coach should do.

I agree if someone needs to help out, but if the coach is present, then the actual coach needs to do what he is getting paid for.

Maybe he just had a long day, assuming multiple teams in PLD tournament. But in general yes, coach is the lead and manager should not be coaching or subbing in for games.

Yes.. If coach is present then he should do his job, and manager on the parents side!

Weird situation. I view the manager as more of an administrative assistant. Duties as assigned, but really on an as needed basis. Should not be doing coaching unless absolutely necessary.

Oir boys are old enough to warm themselves up, but our manager’s husband will make sure they are organized if the coach can’t make it until closer to game time( very rare) He is our assistant manager on the roster. If it’s a league game, coach is pretty much always there unless his older team is in a big showcase. If so, then another coach would be scheduled to cover in advance.

We would never play a game without our coach or another club coach present unless it was a major emergency.

No parent from our team would ever run a training session.

Thanks DoubleDown for the clarification, I thought maybe something had changed this is very odd coming from a Solar Team. Thought the Coach I hired had more sense, and not let a manager do his job.

Seems odd that the coach would just let the manager run practices for him. Is this a regular occurrence? If so, I would absolutely talk to the coach about it (maybe in a group of parents, I'm sure others are annoyed too). I'd have an issue with paying $3,000 and having a random dad coach my kid. I did notice one Solar 05 dad who was coaching more than the coach was during the Labor Day Tournament and thought it was weird and thought there's a manager who doesn't know his place!

As a manager I get the boys organized and make sure they know its time to start warming up before games. It helps out the coach when he as multiple teams. I also sit on the team side during the games to assist the coach with anything he may need. Such as virtual ID cards, roster check in, get a trainer, relay a message to a parent, make sure tent is setup, 2nd pair of eyes, etc.

However I have never been ask to run a full practice or coach a game.

The sole purpose of a manager is no different than the servants passing out the offering plate on Sundays except its required versus a decision to tithe your 10 percent. Looks like soccer is at risk once again maybe the pews will be filled this Sunday.

Guess he is making sure his kid get's 98% playing time by being involved LOL!

Shouldn't the playing time be earned?

My take on this:

Was 6 year manager until this year. Happy to be free to watch my son play until he graduates but do miss some of the involvement. Coaching and training? , NOPE that was up to the coach, assistant or other club coach. Did I help occasionally in 6 years. Yes but probably on one hand the amount of times. Mainly during a game due to a red card or coach was not present at start or end of game. Parents complaining about playing time or other "soccer" related issue that was directed to the coach.
